Mommy's Prayer

Mommy's Prayer


Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray that my sanity to keep;

For if some peace I do not find, I'm pretty sure I'll lose my mind.

I pray I find a little quiet Far from the daily family riot;

May I lie back ... not have to think About what they're stuffing down the sink,

Or who they're with, or where they're at, And what they're doing to the cat.

I pray for time all to myself (Did something just fall off a shelf?)

To cuddle in my nice, soft bed (Oh no! Another goldfish ... dead!)

Some silent moments for goodness sake (Did I just hear a window break?)

And that I need not cook or clean ... (Well heck! I've got the right to dream!)

Yes, now I lay me down to sleep, I pray my wits about me keep;

But as I look around I know ... I must have lost them long ago!

When a mother saw a thunderstorm forming in mid-afternoon,

she worried about her seven-year-old daughter who would be walking the three blocks
from school to home.

Deciding to meet her, the mother saw her walking

nonchalantly along, stopping to smile whenever lightning flashed.

Glimpsing her mother, the little girl ran to her,

explaining enthusiastically,
"All the way home, God's been taking my picture!"
